What to do if you wrote a VB.NET application for a client a couple of years ago, but you no longer have the source code of the .NET project? All you have is the EXE that you deployed on the client's computer. Is there a way you can generate VB.NET source code from the EXE?
RustemSoft's Skater .NET obfuscator has been expanded with .NET assembly browser and decompiler interface that converts executable files (.EXE or .DLL) from Intermediate Language (IL, MSIL, CIL) binary format to high-level source codes, such as C# and Visual Basic.NET.
This is FREE .Net DLL Decompliler And Assembly Browser. These applications help developers to get back their source code after built/compiled all project source code into DLL files. Plus, you also need to preview and ensure all source code from your team members as well as third parties running correctly.
The Skater .NET obfuscator .NET assembly browser and decompiler interface has the features:
Nice variable/method/type/property structure;
Navigable Function/method Declaration/Implementation;
Visual Studio look and feel;
Recognizes all .NET language constructs, such as attributes, properties, events, fields, methods and nested types;
Automatically recognizes different compilers, and generate corresponding target languages, such as C#, Visual Basic.NET, and thus Skater is C# decompiler, and VB.NET Decompiler;
Supports unsafe codes and pointer arithmetic, supports fixed statement;
Comments are generated along with the source codes when API documentation is available;
Recognizes all CIL instructions, handles address type instructions correctly;

It does not matter which obfuscator your product was mangled with. If it compiled to a .NET EXE or DLL, ILDASM will disassemble it and all your work is exposed to the viewer in CIL.
